Can't-Wait Wednesday: Everything You Came to See

Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!

Everything You Came to See
Elizabeth Schulte Martin
Expected publication date: January 2, 2018
Set just before the millennium in the dusty world of fire-eaters, tightrope walkers, and contortionists, Everything You Came to See follows Henry Bell, a talented new performer with a small traveling circus. Henry left behind the only family he ever knew, but among the other performers—and on the stage—he’s found a new home.

Though the circus was once a larger attraction, audiences have grown sparse and Caleb Baratucci, the show’s manager, knows they are on the verge of bankruptcy. Still, he’s determined to revive the circus—if only for the sake of the performers—and provide for his wife, Adrienne, a retired giantess facing a dangerous surgery.

Recovering at home and no longer a headlining act, Adrienne finds herself longing for the comfort of her circus family. When Henry strikes up a friendship with her, Adrienne’s loneliness eases, but Caleb senses that Henry’s feelings run deeper, and if not managed wisely, they could set off a chain of events that will threaten everyone—and everything—they hold dear. - from Goodreads
I love the circus setting of this one, and the idea of a family created from the performers also intrigues me!

  1. I have not read anything in a circus setting like this -- and it has what sounds like wonderfully complicated relationships between these characters. Great pick!

  8. I hadn't heard of this one, but I have to say I'm curious. I think the circus setting is intriguing! Just another reason I'm so excited for the movie The Greatest Showman coming out on Christmas. :)

  10. I love the cover of this! It's simple yet very pretty. The story sounds great as well. I feel like there's a lot of books about traveling circuses yet I've need read one. Maybe I'll have to change that with this. Great pick, Angela!
